We also went over our notes and any questions about Erosion from over the weekend and got a different perspective about Erosion from our friend, Bill Nye!

For Fun: Over the weekend, I was invited to go to North Georgia to see the difference in the rocks to find the different zones in Georgia (Like piedmont, coastal plains, etc.) The regions depend on what types of rock that are found in that area. It was the geologists job to find the line where the rocks change. We were able to look at a sample of granite called 'corbin' taken from North Georgia. It is VERY rare because it has blue quartz instead of white or clear. It also has LICHEN on it which is a form of chemical weathering. The pictures are below from the trip :)
